Lexus presents the new generation LX | its Automotive News


With the Toyota Land Cruiser update elsewhere on the planet, it was only a matter of time before we saw its cousin in Lexus taking shape, which benefits from the same basics.

An updated luxury juggernaut
So, we finally have the right to a new generation LX SUV. The latter takes the name of LX 600. The basic configuration remains the same of course, that is the construction on the ladder frame. However, the model benefits from a new platform that is also the same that has seen the light of day with the Tundra model. Lighter, harder, which can only improve the road behavior of this behemoth.

A low frequency 4×4 system will always be available. Currently, the only engine offered is Toyota Group’s new 3.5-liter V6. Taking advantage of turbocharging, it delivers 409 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, which is more than the old 5.7-liter V8 offered (383 horsepower, 403 lb-ft of torque). A 10-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Aesthetically, we let you judge what you can see. What is surprising is the size of the front grille, but also the more modern character of the lines; The LX was starting in earnest, the last redesign that takes us back about 15 years in time.

At the rear, the letters “LEXUS” replace the brand logo, as we saw on the new 2022 NX. The F Sport version will also be available with a black grille and 22-inch wheels. This one will benefit from a Torsen-slip rear differential, as well and different settings for the length of the shock absorbers.

Lexus says the approach and departure angles will be the same as before. The height-adjustable suspension offers three different levels. There’s also a terrain management system that offers driving modes, as well as several camera angles (optional), including a new angle that can show the terrain under the rear of the car.

For others, and to avoid dwelling on this car that we will have the opportunity to discover more closely when it is officially launched in 2022, let us mention that it will inherit a new multimedia system, which will enjoy the latest technological advances. and safety. Ditto for all the off-road driving aids, though most LX owners don’t venture off the beaten path.
